    January 6, 2017 - I remember this wine being wonderful. I let it decant for several hours and it never opened up. It tasted a bit off. I think my bottle went bad :(

    December 16, 2016 - 2 hours in the decanter. Raspberry, light white pepper, silky tannins, oak, sour cherry, paper, strawberries, almost a lime aftertaste. I keep hoping it will last but it's very light for a bin 389, i Think this is a drink now.

    September 17, 2016 - This is superbly balanced between fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry and redcurrant) subtle oak and the complex coffee, olive and savoury notes that bottle age brings. This is delightful now and I can't wait to see how it will develop over the next 5 to 10 years. Even better on day 2 - probably worth a 94!

    August 16, 2016 - Decanted 3 hours. Big beautiful black fruit in decanter but fell apart in the glass a little . Nice notes of black cherry fruit still on the palate . Very little fruit notes ,but nice black tea and notes of mineral and leather . Tannic structure holding everything in place nicely and should hold several more years . Drink through 2018
